Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.
“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 
“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”


I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law. It’s what they do for a fucking living.

This is heart breaking.

@redhester, I would, but I’m trying to be somewhere within 2 hours of nyc. If i wasn’t, that would be the perfect place. I might apply anyway.

Second person this week trying to convince me to go to an ivy league grad school for a PhD. Why though?

All this elitism is making my skin itch.

The bodies of two Tampa teenagers were discovered Thursday morning on a roadside in Duval County.
Angelia Mangum, 19, and Tjhisha Ball, 18, were found about 1 a.m., according to law enforcement. A witness told Jacksonville news station WJAX the teenagers were bound with zip ties and lying on top of one another.
"Two witnesses were driving by and they saw bodies and they called 911," Sgt. T.K. Waters told news station WJXT.
Officers were dispatched to Sisson Drive, near the intersection of Main Street North and Clark Road.
Investigators suspect foul play and are trying to determine the causes of death.
"They were in an area where they would have been noticed, so I think it was fairly recently since they’d been left there,” Waters also told WJXT.
A medical examiner has taken the bodies to determine the cause of death.
"I just don’t understand what happened," Ball’s sister, Crystal Moore, said.
According to Moore, both women had been living in the Jacksonville area off and on for approximately a year and a half.
"I feel like sometimes that I failed," Ball’s mother, Jerlean Moore, said. "What could I have done? What could I have taught her better? It hurts…it really hurts."
It’s a pain that’s only worsened by the fact that no one has been caught.

:(

i like how autocorrect on my phone turned “since” into “sin embargo”. ummm… what the fuck.

Here’s my new art apron! Just made it today! It’s so beautiful that I don’t want to paint in it.
I made it wide enough and long enough for my partner to fit it too, since he likes to cook.
Wish I had enough of this cloth left to make another.

Happicuppa and mamashug, I’m just seeing your apron offers after I already attempted to make one. Sorry boos, but thanks for thinking of me. I probably can’t have too many aprons though… or maybe I can…
